Posts on How to Blog
Hubspot posted an infographic on the best times to publish blog posts based on analysis of 170,000 blog posts. This information was separated by views, links to the post, and comments on the post. The darker the vertical bar, the more activity in those sectors.
The infographic reveals interesting data.
Links and Comments had heavier activity prior to the heaviest activity on views every day. Were people linking to the posts prior to (or without) viewing the posts?
Comments received the heaviest activity on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays. However, the common perception was that blog post viewership declines on the weekends.
How are people commenting on the post without viewing the post? The only situation I can think of is that this infographic is counting unique pageviews as views. So, people view posts most frequently on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays but a majority of those same people come back to comment on Saturday mornings.
Time zone must be considered, as well. There is a decline in activity of views in the late afternoon through evening until just before midnight. These views could be from international viewers.
